tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC September 1, 2011 12:00am-1:05am EDT
page at abcnews.com to find out the hidden mistakes. and thanks for watching abc news. check in for "good morning america," they're working while you're sleeping. we'll see you here tomorrow. >> dicky: up next on "jimmy kimmel live." >> jimmy: the president's expected to get an earful from voters. and when obama gets an earful, that's an ear -- that's like ten regular earfuls. >> dicky: betty white. >> next week, i'm taking over the show. i didn't know how to tell you that -- >> jimmy: that's fine. >> dicky: robert rodriguez. and music from josh ritter. >> jimmy: we do your bidding, president bachmann. i hike to wear this on a plane. >> dicky: "jimmy kimmel live,"
well, thanks. that's very nice. i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. [ applause ] thank you for coming. you may know me as bridget from the disney channel. [ laughter ] i was in -- i was in chicago over the weekend. anyone -- [ applause ] did you know that oprah used to live there? she was -- she lived there for years. i guess she got kicked out for making too much noise. i ate a lot of things in chicago. i ate duck testicles in chicago. i went to a restaurant. i went to a few restaurants. in one of the restaurants, one of the appetizers was duck testicles. so what am i going to do? not order them? so i ordered them. i mostly w wted to see what they looked like. i'd never seen duck testicles. even ducks probably haven't seen duck testicles. they flip over when they try. [ laughter ]
so they -- the waiter brought them to o e table. and they looked like any other bird testicles really. actually, they looked like white beans. and they taste like chicken testicles. do chickens have testicles? only the male chickens i think. they were kind of gross but it was worth it because it made everyone at the table sick. and that's what going out to eat is all about, isn't it? [ laughter ] so i have that crossed off my bucket list. thank you, chicago. [ applause ] it was a fun trip. there was some -- in iowa this weekend, there was some presidential campaign action. the iowa straw poll was held on saturday. this is an event that gets a lot of attention. even though it's basically a bunch of people eating corn dogs and saying who they're maybe going to vote for next year. it's more a test of the candidates' pan-cake flipping ability than of their popular y popularity.
minnesota congresswoman michele bachmann won. she won the straw poll. she won the straw poll and the crazy straw poll. both of them. apparently it cost -- it costs $30 to vote in the straw poll in iowa. the bachmann campaign paid the fee for 6,000 people and she won. but she won with less than 5,000 votes. which means about 1,000 voters stole her $30. it's kind of funny that a person who's running, her idea is she doesn't believe in government handouts, handed out $30 apiece to 6,000 people. that's how it goes i guess. let's be honest though. she's -- michele bachmann is not going to win. she has no chance at all. she's making herself a celebrity. did you see her on the cover of "newsweek?" the only thing she's going to win is a staring contest. i mean -- look at those eyes. look at those crazy eyes. that's her vote for me or i'll eat your children face. [ laughter ] get closer, if you can. i don't think i'd be comfortable with a presisint who can see through my brain.
she's terrifying, right, guillermo? >> right, jimmy. >> jimmy: my god. >> dicky: i agree, too, jimmy. >> jimmy: what? >> dicky: i said i agree, too. >> jimmy: oh, my god, this is -- it's like some kind of horrible nightmare has happened. we do your bidding, president bachmann. [ laughter ] i'd like to wear this on a plane. stewardess comes by with the drinks. would you like -- ahh! this is -- these are nice. here, enjoy. take that home. this is another michele bachmann photograph we've been enjoying today. you know, the idea in iowa is for the candidates to appear to be as down to earth as possible. i have to say, this is -- that's -- that's pretty down to earth. [ applause ] that's -- wait, she's really --
she's really making friends with that corn dog. here it is from another angle. that's her husband in the background. cheering her on. he -- he looks like a gentleman who enjoys a good corn dog himself, by the way. quite a cast of characters running for the gop nomination. one of them is a guy named herman cane. he used to be ceo of godfather's pizza. this is pretty funny. he's been using this quote regularly to wrap his speeches up. >> a poet once said, "life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible. but it's never easy when there's so much on the line." >> jimmy: turns out that line did not come from a poet but those are lyrics from a song donna summer wrote for the "poke "pokeon" movie in 1999. life can be a challenge. life can seem impossible. but it's never easy when there's so much on the line. i don't know. a guy who owned a pizza company
and knows pokemon, i'm not sure if he should be president, but if you're having a birthday party for a 9-year-old, that is definitely your guy. could you imagine how mad he bust have been when he found out -- when he got ahold of the speechwriter who gave him a line from pokemon? in his defense, i have to say, you have seen that movie? pikachu sacrifices so much for his friend. and i think we need a president with the courage of that brave little yellow squirrel thing. it was a disappointing weekend for minnesota governor tim pawlenty. or t-paw as no one calls him. [ laughter ] after a poor showing on saturday, yesterday, tim pawlenty dropped out of the race for president. he says he wants to spend more time lacking charisma with his family. if you're not sure who tim pawlenty is, he is one of these people. not the woman i think. no one seems to care he dropped out. tim pawlenty dropping out is like bucky covington getting eliminated week eight of "american idol." no one cares. it's still too early.
but meanwhile, while the republican candidates are jockeying for the top spot in their party, president obama, according to a new gallup poll, only 39% of americans approve of the job the president is doing. his ratings are at an all-time low. but then again, "jersey shore" ratings are at an all-time high. so i'm not sure we have the best -- 39% is rough. if you get 39% in school, you get put in a special kid in class with a kid who wears a bike helmet. but see, if it was president, i would just pass a law against opinion polls. hit them at the source. the president started a three-day bus tour today. to try to improve his popularity with the public. which why not? the strategy worked very well for charlie sheen. he's expected to get an earful from voters. and when obama gets an earful, that is -- that's an ear -- that's like ten regular earfuls. so -- [ applause ]
meanwhile, the president of golf, tiger woods, his approval rating is also down right now, primarily because he appears to have lost the ability to play golf. he didn't even qualify for the pga championship this weekend. it reminds me when superman had to give up his powers after he spun the earth backward so he could save lois lane. hookers are tiger woods' kryptonite. or maybe lack of hookers. already laugh i'm not sure. but still, even though tiger isn't playing well, he still draws more attention and enthusiasm than any man on the course. >> tiger at the pga and tiger at the 2nd. >> yeah, 220 yards. >> oh, beautiful looking shot here. >> jimmy: it's the most excited anyone has ever been on a golf course ever. this is pretty good. like most americans, i spend much of my work day watching adorable baby videos on youtube. i think it's in the constitution. it's our right. today i found a video that is doubly adorable because it isn't
just one baby, it's two. [ baby laughing ] [ baby laughing ] >> jimmy: very cute. [ applause ] i think i watched that about a dozen times today. and i want to try it myself. unfortunately, i don't just have babies lying around the studio. so -- well, i used the next best thing. [ guillermo laughing ]
[ guillermo laughing ] >> jimmy: it went on for like . [ applause ] he's -- the reason he's laughing so hard is we filled that thing with patron. [ laughter ] and one more thing. those of you who are visiting know we have a lot of characters outside our building on hollywood boulevard. i mean that literally. there's a battalion of grown adults who dress up like characters from comic books, movies and television. one of my favorites is corey, ththguy who dresses up like chewbacca. corey is an amazing guy because despite the fact that he has no ability or initiative of any kind, somehow he manages to make
a living posing for pictures with tourists. we thought it would be wise to someone he can advise and instruct. it isn't easy for kids to get summer jobs. so, we set corey up with a table and we gave him some questions and we asked him to hire a young helper for the summer and, well, here's how that turned out. >> hey. hi. oh, okay. ways your name? >> wendy. >> wendy? how much money are you looking to make? >> $200. >> like a day or a week or a month? >> i'm starting to do chores at my house, like, so i can earn money. >> chores are good, like, i got a few, like, chores. there's, like, there's, like, there's a pigeon, that's, like, homeless -- i don't know if he's homeless.
okay, never mind. all pigeons are homeless. nobody feeds them. i feed them. i don't get paid for it. it's a chore. are you willing to, like, relocate? >> yeah. >> like, even if it's not a good, like, like, not a house? >> i don't know, what are you talking about? >> like, i got a friend, like, that lives in a -- like, he lives in a van, and he only charges like one buck a night. i lived there for, like, two months once. >> i don't know about that. >> yeah. >> don't know. >> it's pretty cool. he goes to the beach on sunday. >> oh, really? does he know how to surf? >> no, no, he just stays in his van. >> oh. >> yeah. what are you doing with your life right now? >> well, i'm doing dancing. i like to -- i'm singing because i like to sing a lot. i'm doing ballet and jazz. and i do gymnastics. >> gymnastics is cool. like, i know it's glamorous but
i knew this guy named stuart and stuart was a -- he was a great gymnast. everybody was like, stuart's going to be a champion. then one day stuart fell off a pole. i mean, it was bad, like, but -- you just got to be careful, that's all i'm saying. >> okay. >> yeah. >> yeah. >> yeah, so that's cool. >> yeah. >> so, like, can you do this? >> yeah. i don't know how to do that. >> that was good. you got to make it ruffle. like a wave. >> yeah, but it's a little hard. like how do you make the wave sound? >> what i do, i make my voice -- i just, like, get real dry. like, i don't drink water sometimes. >> ahhhh. >> yeah, yeah, that sounds, like, really good. i'm going to count to, like, two, and we're going to do it together. >> okay. >> one, two. ahhh!
i'm going to hire you. >> you're going to hire me? >> yeah, yeah, yeah. i just want to know, like, what's it feel like to be the chosen one? >> i feel super happy and excited and i'm really, really happy to be hired. >> well, that's good. >> really, really happy. >> because i saw, like, ten other kids and they all kind of sucked. >> really? >> yeah. so let's go out there on the boulevard and just make some quick and easy cash. >> yep, let's make some quick and easy cash. >> ahhhh. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thank you. thank you, corey. hey, we got a good show for you tonight. director robert rodriguez is with us. we have music tonight from josh ritter. and we'll be right back with betty white, so stick around. ♪

>> jimmy: so it's a gogo spot. i like the zoo. >> well, the thing is, and we workrkery hard, i've worked with them for almost 50 years now. but if we don't have zoos and -- there would be so many species extinct today if it weren't for zoos. >> jimmy: is that right? >> oh, yes. a type of deer is a classic example. california condor. i'll go into a speech. this will last -- how long is this show?

it was with the understanding that i would not be involved in it went to series. >> jimmy: yeah, they tricked you on that, because of course they wanted you to be in the series. >> who knows? you do a lot of pilots that never get picked up for series. you do the pilot and that's it. usually you don't find out -- you do the pilot maybe in february and you find out in may whether you've made it or not. they picked us up in three weeks. well, i had had such fun with the girls and they said, would you do s se more? i said, no, that wasn't the arrangement. well, i've got the backbone of a jelly fish, so i wound up doing all ten and then they picked us up for 24 more and i'm doing all those. they can't get rid of me now. >> jimmy: yeah, well -- [ cheers and applause ] this show -- you -- you -- like, what do you guys do, do you hang out together or is it just mostly on the set? >> it's mostly on the set because we're all so busy in

can't tell you the tag line, nor the joke that it came from because it was -- valerie bertinelli brought it to work one day. it's not a nice joke. it's not a family joke. >> jimmy: it's dirtyty >> but it cracked us up. well, it's not clean. let's put it that way. it's soiled. >> jimmy: can you tell it? you can't tell it? >> no, i can't tell it, no, i really can't. but we do one for all and all for one. and then the tag line of the joke. and every week, it cracks us up. >> jimmy: really? >> we're not well.

and just as she put her purse down, they said "and the winner is betty white." i didn't know what to do. i didn't know where to look. i couldn't look at zsa zsa. oh. so that was a big thrill. >> jimmy: not for zsa zsa. >> not for zsa zsa. >> jimmy: we'll be right back. betty white is here.

[ applause ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: robert, that's one of the fastest entrances. like a bull coming out of the gate. >> it's all about time, man, time is money. >> jimmy: i know you came out from austin, texas, where you shoot all your movies. >> i shoot all my movies in austin. >> jimmy: do you live -- you work in your house or you have two places right next to each other? >> i've always worked out of my house. before it was really fashionable. i used to get computers and put them together and do all the editing, all the music, everything out of the house. i just like working at home. >> jimmy: does your family like
that? do they like having all that kind of action going on around them? >> you know, i really need it r myself, too. they do it enjoy it. i love working at home and being around the kid. it's like having your own family-run restaurant. you have your kids participate. if i had a restaurant, i'd be be making the kids sweep the floor and -- >> jimmy: though if you ever go into a family-run restaurant, the parents areorking and the kids are sit iting sadly watching like some terrible cartoon on the television. >> no, i'd put them to work. in the "spy kids" movies, i made all my kids stunt kids. they didn't have stunt kids. back in the day they would use little people. you couldn't get away with it in the "spy kids" movie. so i put my own kinds in. >> jimmy: wow. >> yeah. they got to help put food on the table. >> jimmy: how many kids do you have? >> i have five kids. >> jimmy: five kids? and all their names start with r, right? >> yeah. it started because i thought i was going to have a girl at first and i had a really pretty name, breannan. but then i had another boy. let me give him a cool name. i named him rocket. so i had another boy. you just just name him r rph.
he became racer. then rebel. the fourth one was almost rerun but he became -- he became rogue. >> jimmy: rogue? >> then we finally got the girl. >> jimmy: you went with -- >> they have regular middle names in case they don't start their own wrestling team. >> jimmy: i see. do they like having unusual names? >> they're really great kid names to have. i figured by the time they turned teenagers they would change it. but they're sticking with it. rocket's still rocket. racer's still racer. >> jimim: it's hard to go back from rockeke >> yeah. >> jimmy: and do the kids -- they must be aware now at this point that it's unusual to have movie stars in the kitchen. right? >> they don't realize it at first. but then when they go back and look at the family album, they go, your uncle bruce, that's really bruce willis. uncle benny, that's benicio del toro. so it's pretty fun they get to grow up with that. >> j jmy: yeah, i guess so. you've worked with a lot of great actors. stallone and -- >> johnny depp.
>> jimmy: like, who made the biggest impression on you? >> steven seagal. >> jimmy: for real? >> by far. there's great actors. there's people who, they're not acting, they're the real deal. and i totally now believe every story i've ever heard about steven seagal. he was breaking the practice swords just by slicing the air because he would be like -- then boom, there it would go. >> jimmy: does that mean you're good at it or really bad at it? >> he's really good at it. the sword master was just having a fit because he was breaking them without even doing anything. so -- >> jimmy: you don't want to upset the sword master. >> i'm going to have to use half my speed. half my strength. bonk. they'd go. i made deal with him. i won't ask any favors but at the end of this movie, i don't really get in fights but in case i get in a beef with somebody, is there one move you can teach me? just like, get me in, get me out. he said, yeah, come over to my studio and i'll show you how to really hurt a man. i have not taken him up on that.
i saw what he did with the practice swords. he's going to practice on me. but i might take him up on that. >> jimmy: you shouldld you should learn how to really hurt a man. >> if i ever get in trouble, if i'm in jail for hurting somebody, you'll know it was steven. >> jimmy: we'll question him. >> he's amazing, though. >> jimmy: now, this "spiy kids" movie, it's in 4d. explain what that is. >> the "spy kids" series have been scrappily innovative for their time. on the third one, we brought back 3d for the first time in 20 years. that's kind of what started this whole resurgence. so we thought for 4, you can't just go 33d again. so, we thought 4. you smell the movie. it makes it very interactive. whether it's a good smell. you smell l . there's a surprising smell, you smell that too. >> jimmy: scratch and sniff cards? >> kind of like that. it's a newer technology. you just kind of rub it and great smells come out. >> jimmy: did you personally as director evaluate each scent?
>> i tested it on my kids. >> jimmy: you did? >> yeah, come here, does that smell like -- >> jimmy: these kids -- they're going to take these children away from you. [ laughter ] so the kids -- they approved, they said whether this -- >> they said, this stinks. i went, this good then. this smells really wonderful then. i had a bag full of different smells. >> jimmy: what about "spy kids 5," will you do that -- will you come up with a 5d ready? >> i have it ready. >> jimmy: what could that be? >> you can almost guess if you think about it. >> jimmy: really? is it the temperature? is there weather? >> i can't say it. i can't say it. >> jimmy: you said we can almost guess. >> you could almost guess. >> jimmy: guillermo, do you know what it is? >> no, no. >> he calls it cinco-d. >> jimmy: i would love to know what that is. you would do that in the fifth
one? and what if -- somebody else comes with 5-d it? will you be prepared? >> totally have to be ready in 6-d. like "spinal tap." one louder. >> jimmy: i would also like to thank you for introducing salma hayek to the u uted states of america. >> oh, well, yes. [ applause ] >> she's wonderful. she's actually godmother to my kids. >> jimmy: to all of them? >> yeah. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah. >> jimmy: you're not supposed to have one for all the kids. you're supposed to -- >> if you find one really good one. kind of stick with the best. >> jimmy: i think you made a pretty good choice there. it's great to see you. congratulations. give my best to your children. robert rodriguez. you can see his new movie, "spy kids: all the time in the world" in 4d starting friday. we'll be right back with josh ritter. aa
